In 1964 I had my first ride in a 289 Cobra- I have recapped that moment in my mind a zillion times. About then, I set goals in life; one was to own a 427 Cobra. Forty years later I could finally see that dream turn to reality.  Not being able to opt for an original, I looked into kit Cobras which just didn't do it for me (I had just completed a 23 year ground up, body-off restoration on my 1965 Corvette Fuelie and was burnt out) and then discovered I could get a better than original Cobra that was professionally constructed from a factory, with state of the art race-worthy components and a paint job that would knock your socks off.  Now, every time I hit that start button, my pulse races just like it did that day in 1964, but this time I'm behind the wheel!
